Wild Raisin

I'm thinking I encountered Wild Raisin at my backyard campsite. I had camped there a night before and was heading to go back again the next night but as I walked back there in the dark I was hit with a really powerful smell basically right in front of my hammock station. An animal could smell like this? Anyway, it was late and I was in the 90 miler the next day so I went back into the house. Then next morning there was no trace of the smell. Someone suggested it might be Wild Raisin? I didn't see that around ......... What do y'all think?

Wild Raisin. Google it. it's a plant in the adirondacks. the leaves are toxic and stink, but the berries/fruit is supposed to be good to eat. I was thinking about those reports of big foot where it's mentioned there is a strong musky odor ..... well, I kinda ruled that out but figured it was gonna be a mushroom or similar. Now I just need to find this plant when I get back up to the dacks next year.

Wild raisin is pretty common in NY. There is a both a northern and southern variety. Here is a helpful link to the NY Flora Atlas.
